Plunder Of National Resources
USA, Feb. 21 - As a zambian living in the States, I would like to express my joy that finally egoisitic leaders who go to State House to become rich through crooked means will always be made to account for their evil deeds.
Chiluba did not rule Zambia for 10 years as his former wife asserts, he plundered Zambia for 10 years.He reduced our people to the poorest in the whole world.Can she point out one thing which he did in that period to make the life of the common Zambian better than he had found it? We had very high hopes and aspirations in 1991 for a better future but he destroyed our country,our pride,our dignity.
Today Zambia is more corrupt than any country in West Africa where corruption is endemic and we are a despised people in Southern Africa due to the poverty he inflicted on us.Does she know how people are hopelessly dying in our hospitals or even homes since they can not afford going to a hospital? While she cries about her mercedes guzzling over K250,000 fuel in one trip to Lusaka, which is more than a poor techer's salary.
Zambia, Africa it is time to fight back or we shall slide back into the caves again although we have all the natural resources in the world.Japan has none and Israel have none but they are very rich.
Remember: We are watching you!!
